UIS Career Center invites employers to participate in “Foot in the Door” Fair

The Career Development Center at the University of Illinois at Springfield will sponsor the 2009 “Foot in the Door” Fair for UIS students interested in part-time jobs, internships and volunteer opportunities – both on- and off-campus – from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, August 27, in the lower level concourse area of the Public Affairs Center on the UIS campus. The event is free to all UIS students.

The “Foot in the Door” Fair is intended to bring students and local employers or organizations together to discuss career opportunities in a broad range of available positions. Local employers with job opportunities are invited to participate in the event, which typically yields around 300 students in attendance.

Booth assignments will be made on a first-come, first-served response basis. Additionally, interviewing rooms will be available for employer use during the fair.

Registration for the event takes place through the Career Center’s online system called UIS-SUCCESS, which also allows employers to establish a company profile and post career opportunities at no cost. UIS students and alumni are then able to view and apply for positions directly through the system by uploading their resume.

All employer services through the UIS Career Center are free of charge. Employers are given the opportunity to host on-campus information sessions, informational tables, interviews and more. For more information about employer services, contact the Employer Relations Recruitment Coordinator at (217)206-6508 or e-mail
